Buy handmade this season! Indie craft shows across the nation are there to supply you with all of your holiday shopping so you don't ever have to set foot in a big box store or mall.

Over at Hello Craft, they aim to keep you in the know when it comes to local craft shows. Below is a list of the ones coming up before the holiday season and we hope you can make it if there's one going on near you. Make sure to spread the word to all your friends and family even if you can't attend as many still don't know of the treasures they hold.

You can find everything from handmade soaps to letter press prints to furniture and accessories made from reclaimed wood. Many of the shows are juried and artists have to apply to get in, so you know you're only getting the best crafts your area has to offer. If you don't see your city on the list below, make sure to check your local Craigslist as there's usually multiple listings for those events that are on a less mainstream scale!

Here's what's still on the agenda for November, even though there's only a few days left, there's still lots of handmade shows happening. Check out Crafty Nest for the full list of shows to see in December (there's over 20!)
